Whether it is connecting with members in a personalized way or helping members remain in their homes, Ohio credit unions continue to meet the needs of more than 3 million Ohioans. The League is committed to helping you tell that story, so we recently testified on pending Ohio legislative priorities that would further empower credit unions to help their members achieve financial well-being through the following initiatives:
- Retaining the ability to work with member borrowers clearly and consistently with unique circumstances is a priority; the state must modify existing law to accommodate flexible member service for struggling borrowers.
- Preventing evictions, mortgage delinquencies, defaults, or foreclosures during an economically challenging time is essential to preserving affordable housing; Ohio renters and homeowners impacted by the pandemic need additional housing assistance.
The League will continue sharing with state legislators how Ohio credit unions remain dedicated financial partners to one out of four Ohioans, promoting economic mobility to protect and enhance communities.
